If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale

PRETTY LITTLE BOOK REVIEW
All the Frogs in Manhattan is a humorous tale about a woman who is searching for her prince charming in a sea of frogs. With added sass and a lot of spice, Carrie Aaron's turns a mundane tale into a total winner with this one. Even more, she sucks her readers into a tale that could easily be a readers life. Why? Because if you really think about it, how many frogs have you kissed before you met your prince and reached your HEA? Probably quite a few. Life and love are not perfect and we can't always find our match right away, but if we are patient and go with the flow it will eventually fall in our laps (or maybe even be right in front of our faces and we never even noticed). This my friends, is how the story plays out for sassy Gemma, and I loved every minute of it.
As with many romances, the plots of various books all seem to swarm together, making them not only forgettable, but a bit boring while reading. There have been quite a few romance novels that I have simply put to the side because of this (I mean, who doesn't get tired of the same thing over and over again). But this book had a very unique quality to it that I loved and made it stand out from the others. Perhaps it's the fact that the book is like a modern day fairy-tale, or that the characters hold different personalities than other characters in different books. Either way, I found this book to be unique and very fun. It's also a lighthearted read, light on the drama, and filled with some very steamy scenes that will make seasoned romance readers blush!
Readers who like fairy-tales with a modern edge, and those who enjoy books that are filled with laugh out loud moments and crappy dates will enjoy this one. I personally picked up this book based on the cover (it deserves some cover love because, really, how cute is it) and couldn't stop until I finished the story. So even if it's just the cover that catches your eye, give a new book a chance. It's worth the read!
PS: The "hero" or "prince charming" of the novel is a nerdy tech guy/billionaire and is sure to make his way into your heart. He's what we women would call a "keeper"
